Montage was recorded and produced by Jeremy VanSlyke and Leaf Music in early 2014. It will be made available on CD as well as iTunes, Amazon and other digital music sources on October 27. The recording features works for string quartet by composers with a connection to Atlantic Canada including Martin Kutnowski, Eldon Rathburn, Michael Miller, and Tony Genge. The recording was made possible in part through a grant from the government of New Brunswick. The recording was made at the beautiful Our Lady of Perpetual Hope church in Rothesay, NB and was the first time the group made a recording using high resolution 88.2/24 bit digital recording technology. Leaf Music produced and mastered the group’s previous recording in 2011 Saint John String Quartet & Jacques Dupriez which garnered a JUNO nomination for ‘Classical Composition of the Year.’
